CITY | REGION LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER | KENTUCKY.COM POLLUTION From Page A3 Clean Air Act” and court precedent. The utility industry applauded the ruling. “When the EPA takes liberties with its legal authority, the result is higher prices for consumers, businesses, schools and hospitals,” said Scott Segal, director of the Electric Reliability Coordinating Council, a coalition of utilities and energy companies. Pat D. Hemlepp, spokesman for American Electric Power, said utilities have made significant cuts in emissions under an earlier, Bushera standard that will remain in place. Hemlepp said it’s too soon to say how Tuesday’s ruling will affect AEP’s decision on what to do with its huge Big Sandy power plant in Lawrence County. AEP, which has 173,000 Kentucky customers, once FROM A5 O’ROARK Lucille Bertha Lawrence, 87, wife of Charles Edward O’Roark for 66 years, of Lexington, died Monday, August 20, 2012 at Thomson-Hood Veterans Center. A retired employee of the University of Kentucky, she was a US Navy veteran of WW II. Born in Greenville, TX, she was a daughter of the late William and Bertha Bernard Lawrence. She was an active member of Mary Queen of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church and an avid Bridge player. In addition to her husband, she is survived by a son, John Richard (Dianna) O’Roark, Georgetown; a daughter, Karen (E.W.) Davidson, Versailles; a sister, Geraldine Lawrence, Sunset, LA; 5 grandchildren, Kenneth O’Roark, Traci Mahone and Ryan, Kevin and Lauren Davidson and 4 greatgrandchildren, Ellie and Ava Mahone and Jax and Annie O’Roark.

Memorial contributions are suggested to ThomsonHood Veteran Center. www.milwardfuneral.com OSBORNE Burl, of Dallas, TX, a legendary journalist and devoted husband, father and grandfather, died Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2012 at the age of 75. Born in the coalmining town of Jenkins, KY, Mr. Osborne blazed a trail through life, never slowed by an experimental kidney transplant in 1966, another in 1994, and a successful bout with cancer several years ago. He began his well-documented career as a reporter with the Associated Press in West Virginia, breaking hard news and writing with a deft touch on the quirky and the heartwarming, claiming early fame with stories about a dog named Brownie, who was trapped for a month in a mine shaft. Mr. Osborne rose through the ranks of the Associated Press, leaving as Managing Editor of its worldwide news operations in New York to join the Dallas Morning News as its executive editor. There, he led the team of editors and reporters that ultimately won a newspaper war with the rival Dallas Times Herald and eventually rose to publisher and an executive and director of the Morning News’ parent Belo Corp., from which planned to spend nearly $1 billion to upgrade pollution controls at the plant so it could keep burning coal — much of it produced in Kentucky — but withdrew that plan. The cross-state emissions rule was not the only regulation affecting decisions on whether to retire coal-fired plants or take other measures such as switching them to natural gas, Hemlepp said. The East Kentucky Power Cooperative, which supplies electricity to member co-ops with a total of 520,000 customers, joined the challenge to the cross-state pollution rule. One reason was that because of how the rule allocated emissions allowances, the co-op’s newest generating plant would have been unfairly penalized, said spokesman Nick Comer. Environmental groups bemoaned Tuesday’s decision and called on the EPA to appeal. p, he retired in 2001. He returned to the Associated Press as a director, and in 2002, became Chairman of the news cooperative’s board. Mr. Osborne would later become a director and interim CEO of Freedom Communications. He joined the board of J.C. Penney in 2003, and headed its human resources and compensation committee. He also served on the board of Andrews McMeel Universal. During his career, he supported numerous non-profits and trade associations as a board member, officer or trustee including, the American Society of Newspaper Editors, The National Press Institute, the Texas Daily Newspaper Association, the Newspaper Association of America, the Southern Newspaper Association, Southwest Transplant Alliance, the National Kidney Foundation and the Committee to Protect Journalists. He also co-chaired the Pulitzer Prize Board. He was a founding member of the Advisory Council at the Center for Vital Longevity at the University of Texas Dallas and a member of the Board of Visitors at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Despite his numerous professional accomplishments, Mr. Osborne will most be remembered by his friends and family for his fierce loyalty, quick wit, unquestionable honesty, kind heart and generous nature. He also had an enthusiasm for fast cars and fine wine, a passion that fueled his founding of The Dallas Morning News Wine Competition and food festival, an annual event that became one of the largest of its kind. His unending love for his soul mate and muse, Betty, whom he met in 1971 and whom he married in 1974, was as legendary among those who knew them as were his accomplishments in journalism. They traveled the world together, finished each other’s sentences and spoke every day - save for 10 or so when Burl was traveling for business in far flung places with no phones or cell reception. Most recently, Burl reveled in doting on his 15-month-old grandson, Harry, whom he loved with all his heart. He is preceded in death by his father, Oliver, his mother, Juanita, who donated his first kidney, and his youngest brother Rick, both of Ashland, KY. He is survived by his brother David, who donated his second kidney, and his sister-in-law, Joyce, all of Ashland, KY, his wife Betty of Dallas and his son Jonathan of Austin and his wife Brigette and their son, Harry. Memorial donations may be made in Burl Osborne’s name to the following: Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute Development Department, Forbes Tower, Suite 8084, 3600 Forbes Avenue at Meyran Ave. Pittsburg, PA 15213; National Kidney Foundation Finance Department, 30 East 33rd St., New York, NY 10016; Committee to Protect Journalists, Development Department, 330 7th Ave, 11th Floor, New York, NY 10001.

The Clean Air Task Force said that the ruling “will mean that American lives will continue to be needlessly lost.” Mary Anne Hitt, director of the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign, said the cross-state emissions rule was needed to help clean up the nation’s air. An EPA spokeswoman said the agency was reviewing the decision and will figure out what steps to take. The rule scuttled Tuesday was aimed at cutting emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide that come from power plants, refineries and industries in 28 states, but can be carried long distances to other states.
